I'm very Watchful of kids, and I think I posted this before, but one time I was with my nieces and nephews watching them like a hawk (yes EVILQueen) and I turned my head for two seconds, and I looked back, my youngest nephew was already about 30 feet away walking rhe other direction. Even the most watchful parent, uncle, aunt, grandparent....etc., looks away for a second. Doesn't make us bad people...just human! - DisneyDavidEMT  2441.6 #52 8:22PM

I was the lost child once, when i as like 1. My mom and sister went to the bathroom, and my dad and I were in the Main Street Locker room. My dad took me out of the stroller to straighten it up, and I crawled into the open locker we were using, and it closed behind me. And that is why I was a child who wore a leash/harness... - fletheartsdisney  644.7 #295 9:16PM
Personally I like to leave Brooklynne home with her daddy so I don't have to worry about it! Geez who wants to take their kid to Disneyland?! Crazy people, I tell ya! - Deltachiq  1228.0 #134 10:31PM
If you just leave her strapped in her stroller while you go on rides, you won't lose her! I love stroller parking! - FindMeAtTheCove  237.4 #1457 10:45PM
Tried to do that once. I was told by the group I was with I wasn't allowed. She was sleeping for goodness sakes and it really wanted to ride RSR opening week. It was only a 240 minutes wait. She would have slept through most of it! - Deltachiq  1228.0 #134 10:50PM
Lol! Last time I borrow children.... - minnieluv  108.8 #3388 10:50PM
Even the most careful parents can lose somebody. The lost child/parent system at Disneyland is awesome, and I am SO happy they are!! - mrstoad  256.1 #1249 7:48PM

*sigh* evilqueen, are you serious? Even the most watchful parent can lose a child in a place as busy as Disneyland. We once lost my lil cousin at AdventureDome in Las Vegas while he walked just a few feet away from us to throw something away in the trash can. He was five at the time and started following a family that was also wearing AZ Dbacks shirts that day. These things can happen to even the most responsible parents. - KermitFan13  653.7 #288 8:28PM

Usually if you have to start a sentence with the word "sorry," you should just keep your mouth shut. - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #184 9:28PM
Yes, watchful parents CAN lose their kids. Children are small and quick. They can be gone in the blink of an eye. I thought I lost my babycakes once at Gymboree Play and Music. A gated in facility. I only looked away for one second. My heart dropped. Luckily I found him rather quickly. It can happen as quick as a car accident when closing your eyes to sneeze for one second. - aidensmama  340.3 #669 10:30PM

I've helped many lost kids find their parents over the couple years I've worked in the park. It can get quite scary for both sides - BaseballMickey_CM  7257.3 #9 9:22PM

I got lost once after a parade in one of those crazy concert like crowds. It was at night and pretty scary. My phone was dead but I waited in the same spot like a good kid and eventually my wife found me - philliprocks  1202.6 #139 9:38PM
You guys need to have a meeting spot like my hubby and I do! We always meet in the hub if we're separated. LOL Also don't forget how helpful the CM's are! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - Cinderella_Schnooks  3235.8 #40 11:09PM
As I always tell my kids, if you're not within tackling distance then you're too far. - Hagrid  128.4 #3006 7:41PM
Never lost one at Disneyland but did at Great America. It was terrifing. Took 45 min to find him on the other side of the park - GoofyMomma  196.8 #1982 7:33PM

no worst part was it wasn't even my child. - GoofyMomma  196.8 #1982 9:05PM
Scary to imagine! Thank goodness everything turned out ok. I'm in favor of the leash, but my wife not so. Having 2 is manageable, but 3+ can be tough! We only have 2 and that's hard enough! - snappy  409.2 #520 8:06PM
About 13 years go we lost my son at disney world He was 5 at the time. We came off pirates and stop to look he kept going.It was very scary. He was at the lost and found a cm took him there. He told them his mom and dad go lost. - Disneyforlife  230.2 #1561 8:07PM
Lol! Yeah, that's exactly what she told me... - minnieluv  108.8 #3388 8:11PM
LoL. I guess that is the reason why they have a sign outside of City Hall about lost parents looking for their kids. - KermitFan13  653.7 #288 8:30PM
My parents lost me as a kid when I was 6. My brothers and their baseball team (so about 12 boys) came up with the wonderful plan to play hide-&-seek on tom sawyer island. When it was time for lunch i was still hiding on the island alone. As I was crying my eyes out a CM was nice enough to play patty cake with me till my parents, about 10 minutes later came and got me. - CMallyg92  108.7 #3391 8:33PM
My niece got lost in toontown & was found by the Matterhorn a few years ago. The CM were great though!! They found her, thank the good Lord!! - Superspacemountainfan  82.9 #3791 8:58PM

My sister lost her 5 yo. She was waiting in line while her hubby went to get something. They each thought the other had him, when her hubby returned 10 min later they relized what happened and went into panic mode! Found him 10 min later at a gift shop near by with a cast member! - julietyler76  8.4 #11642 9:08PM
It is scary Lil E walked away from Mom near Jedi academy when she was 3 or 4. Fortunately they found each other - E-Ticket  1434.7 #106 9:09PM
PS. I told the kids to find a CM an tell them they are lost if they got lost. They never had to though - E-Ticket  1434.7 #106 9:11PM
That is my worst nightmare! So scary for you! I lost my oldest when he was 2 at a subway. I went to pay and he ran out the door. I caught him half way down the block! It's been backpack leashes ever since. Yes I'm "that" parent. I'll take the nasty looks over the missing child any day! - Disneycrazymom  137.8 #2860 11:29PM
No matter how watchful you are, it can happen. When my oldest was about 2 or 3, my mother and I took her to the state fair where they had a Disney show going on. After the show, they had a huge area where they had bouncy stuff for the kids. I literally turned to my mother, handed her the diaper bag, turned back, and my daughter was gone! She disappeared in a matter of seconds! (She went running to climb on a bouncy, I guess, and was eventually returned to us by an employee because she still had her shoes on.) It was the scariest two hours of my life. Okay, it probably only lasted a few minutes, but it FELT like hours. A child can wander/run off in a matter of seconds, no matter how watchful the parent!! - jmgphx  323.1 #745 8:17AM
I watch my daughter like a hawk - ScooterMike  1963.0 #76 7:25PM
Exactly what I do!! - Witchie77  364.1 #598 7:38PM
Nope. But I can imagine how terrifying that was. - DisneyFanZoe  1243.8 #132 7:28PM
We thought we lost my nephew at the Halloween party! I've never seen my brother so freaked out and panicked in all my life! So sorry that happened to you but glad you had a good outcome. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3235.8 #40 7:34PM
I panicked..for a second I even forgot what she was wearing...good thing I always take a picture as soon as w get there.... - minnieluv  108.8 #3388 9:40PM
Excellent idea! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3235.8 #40 9:59PM
Even my kids being teens... They are under my eye at all times. Lots of great MWers in the park, but waaaaay too many cray cray too - dimplesdanie  1236.7 #133 7:34PM

We lost our youngest once. We stopped at Grizzly Bear Rapids to check the stand-by time. We were all there one second, and the next our four year old was gone. My husband and daughters searched, and I ran to get help from a CM. Our rule is to sit down as soon as they realize they are lost, but a helpful stranger took him by the hand, and led him to Paradise Pier where they handed him off to a security CM. He was gone for about 15 minutes. Longest 15 of my life!! - mrstoad  256.1 #1249 7:46PM
I too have a "in case you get separated from me" plan, and remind the kids everytime before we walk into the parks...I just never thought I would have to actually use it...I am glad all went well for you too - minnieluv  108.8 #3388 8:08PM
Yes, the plan my brother uses is to stay in place. I don't know if either of you are familiar with the Halloween party but they have taped lines on the pavement of the park for trick or treating and they go back-and-forth and zigzag and it's really easy to not know which direction you should go because guests have been walking on the tape all night and that's how my nephew got confused. Fortunately we just went backwards in line and found him standing there about 7 yards or so from us. His Mom kept praising him for doing exactly what she always taught him. But still you don't know if someone could've snatched him. Scary thoughts go through your mind. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3235.8 #40 8:53PM
I like your plan of what to do in case it happens. I will Need to remind my youngest, well, for that matter, the older one too! Before our next trip. Thats where cell phones are handy for the older Ones though. The ability to text in the parks is a God send! - MeridaFan  3634.7 #37 9:22PM
Nope, but we use a child harness on very busy days when my dd refuses to hold hands. We get criticized heavily for this but better than a lost child. - CheshireCam  200.2 #1938 8:00PM
Agree - minnieluv  108.8 #3388 8:03PM
If you ever get a chance to watch modern family when they went to Disneyland that was a huge part of the episode. My husband I always smile when we see a child on a "tether". That's what they called it in the show. So sweet. Good for you. No one knows your child better than you and what's best for them. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3235.8 #40 8:59PM
My little one is fast and thinks it's a game to run away from me. She's at the independent string willed 3yo faze. Boy I hope it's a faze. lol - CheshireCam  200.2 #1938 9:01PM

Thank you all for making me feel better. I always watch them, especially because they are not mine, but a three year old sure is fast! She knew she did wrong by walking away from me...but I too learned my lesson...never look away! Lol! - minnieluv  108.8 #3388 8:02PM

Thankfully, Disney has an impeccable record of reuniting children and their lost parents. We found my 5 year old cousin in the first aid after losing him by the Matterhorn during a "who's got to go to the bathroom" fiasco. 😁 - bluefairy  643.3 #296 10:05PM
Is it weird that Disneyland is one of the few public places I don't totally freak out about this? I mean, has any kid ever been lost/kidnapped from Disneyland? They're so on top of it. - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #144 11:34PM
I guess because they are not mine, I do try to be extra careful, but when you work with children (specially abused children) you never put your guard down, even at the happiest place on earth. They don't check Megan's list before they give you a pass.... - minnieluv  108.8 #3388 7:39AM
When we first visit Disneyland in 2010, there was a group of parents giving out flyers by the entrance to remind parents to be careful that kids can be very easily to get lost in the happiest place on earth. Looked like they had actually lost their own kids there before. This would be the worst nightmare to any parents. - RapunzalK  196.7 #1985 11:36PM
I received similar flyers around that time. Could be different ones, but the ones I got were being distributed as part of a scare tactic used by the union in a bitter dispute over their contract. - SneakyStella  321.9 #751 12:18AM
I have helped many kids find a CM to stay with until the parents find them. I usually have a keen eye to see when a child and parent gets separated and am quick to stop everything I am doing to make sure the child gets to an available CM ASAP. Even after I watch the child to make sure they get reunited. Freaks me out and I'm not a parent. - aprilinjune4  483.5 #416 8:21AM
Nope not yet. - Lelundrial  591.6 #329 8:23AM
During my last trip, I saw about 5 kids over the course of two days trying to find their parents (they all had CMs with them). It seemed like everywhere we went we saw a poor kid lost. - KylaShea  632.7 #302 8:25AM
I lost my son at a large amusement park in Carlsbad. The scariest experience ever! You don't joke about it even 10 years later. - MeridasHair  346.5 #647 8:26AM
I lose stuff everyday. - donnievegas  1132.7 #154 8:27AM
I didn't lose them per say. . . we were on Tom Sawyers Island. My kids knew not to leave the island without me, so I knew where they were. They also stick to together, so they weren't "alone". I'm 5'8" and have a little extra meat on the bones, so I don't move well inside the caves. After a couple laps on the island I did find them, together happy and playing, but I was on "high alert" mode thinking all the horrible what ifs. - GoofyMom77  729.1 #253 9:03AM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the week of September 29, 2015
Mickey's Halloween Party has an interesting effect on crowd levels. This week, Disneyland will close early on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to host the party. Disneyland Park crowds are usually lighter on party days (with the exception of Friday). Last weekend was very busy, while this Monday was not. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the low 60s (approx 60% capacity). Important note when comparing last year's Crowd Index: we've seen larger crowds on average this year due to the 60th Celebration activities. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Sep 29, 2015 11:33AM

We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  558.8 #346 5:39PM
